Whether Kane Brown is performing on a big stage, in a small room or on live television, one thing is for sure, he can certainly make ladies swoon wherever he is. And he definitely had fans screaming for him on Feb. 12 when he joined “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” as the musical guest.
Toward the end of the Los Angeles-based nightly program, Kane treated an enormous outdoor crowd to a performance of his newly Gold-certified hit, “Heaven,” which appears on the deluxe edition of his self-titled album.
Following an opening guitar intro, Kane, who paired a black jacket and torn pants with some white sneakers and a matching ball cap, leaned into the microphone and showcased his sexy and smooth southern vocals on the vulnerable ballad that plays out like an open love letter to the lucky lady in his life.
“Everybody’s talking about heaven like they just can’t wait to go / Saying how it’s gonna be so good, so beautiful / Lying next to you, in this bed with you, I ain’t convinced / ‘Cause I don’t know how, I don’t know how heaven, heaven / Could be better than this,” Kane, who is engaged to Katelyn Jae, crooned during the chorus.
Midway through the tune, the handsome 24-year-old Georgian abandoned his microphone stand to get a bit closer to the audience. He then encouraged his fans to sing along with him on the last chorus. And sure enough, they did.
“Heaven” follows Kane’s double-platinum certified duet “What Ifs,” featuring Lauren Alaina, which Kane also performed for Jimmy Kimmel’s outdoor stage audience. Once again he got the crowd involved by holding out his microphone for them to sing every time he got to the words “last first kiss” in the chorus. Check out that performance below.
This week, Kane was surprised with news that his 2016 release, “Used to Love You Sober” earned RIAA Platinum status. Not bad for an artist who broke through in an unorthodox way by posting cover song videos on social media.
Kane is currently on the road as a supporting act on Chris Young’s “Losing Sleep Tour” along with fellow tour opener LANCO. Fans can see Kane on that tour through April. After that, he will take to the road solo for a handful of fairs and music festivals. Be sure to check out kanebrownmusic.com for a full list of his upcoming tour dates.
